ArTs at Bost Update- December 2022
The Fall Sessions of Art, ACTS and Dance are quickly wrapping up! The sessions started in Late August and ran through December.
The Dance classes have been working on movement and stretching to increase flexibility. The adult dance classes are excited to have been invited to Dress Rehearsal for The Nutcracker Ballet, which is put on by the Western Arkansas Ballet.
The ACTS class has been working on the next ACTS performance around the theme of a jewelry heist- the participants are after a large diamond, and some are creeping and sneaking to steal the diamond while others work to stop the thieves and save the day. Be on the lookout for the performance date as you won’t want to miss this.
The Art class has been learning about three-dimensional art and have created ceramic Christmas ornaments, soap trays and wooden mug trees during the Fall session. Participants learned about how to cut and mold shapes from clay, how to carve designs, learned to attach pieces together and learned about applying glaze to pieces to make ornaments and trays. To make the wooden mug trees they learned to measure the pieces correctly to make the tree balance and worked to hammer the pieces together with a rubber mallet and glue in place with wood glue. After assembling the trees, they painted and added embellishments to the trees. Some participants added clips for Christmas Cards or Photos. Participants also created a large Christmas tree display in the Art room at Foster with hand drawn ornaments. Ornaments and mug trees will soon be available for purchase on artsatbost.com, Blue Umbrella in Little Rock or at the ArTs at Bost Christmas Show and Competition on December 15th in the Frick Building training room.
